One of the favorite Irish ways to serve potatoes. For a change try adding any of these:Leeks, nettles, peas, or brown crispy onions. Instead of the green onions I added frozen peas after mashing the potatoes with the hot milk and then kept the potatoes hot Looked and tasted great

Good mashed potatoes, Bergy! They went well with the Irish pork dish we did for St. Pat's day. The recipe was easily halved for two, I did add a dash of cayenne instead of regular pepper. Thanks for sharing a good one.

Delicious and very easy! A nice twist on classic mashed potatoes! Warming the scallions in the milk gave the entire dish a subtle scallion flavor. I will definatly make this again! Thanks!
